Costcutter Supermarkets Group has confirmed details of next year’s annual Expo, which will take place at the Harrogate Convention Centre on March 28, 2019.
Entitled ‘Putting shoppers first to drive your sales’, the one-day event, which will be followed by a gala dinner and awards ceremony, will see the Group share plans and programmes to help its retailers continue to grow and develop their businesses.
The Expo will provide more detail about the new supply partnership and franchise options with the Co-op and will see the new Co-op own-brand range brought to life. In addition, the team and retailers will be giving first-hand updates on the Shopper First Programme.
Retailers can meet with suppliers and take advantage of show-only deals. A special Retailer Community Hub will be set up to facilitate the sharing of successes amongst Costcutter Supermarkets Group’s community of independent retailers.
Costcutter boss Darcy Willson-Rymer said: “With our great new retailer offer now in place, we’re looking forward to Expo bringing together our community of independent retailers. We’ll share some of the exciting plans and fantastic successes our members have had and inspire our retailers with tangible actions they can take back and implement within their own businesses to help them drive sales.”
